I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions (6 or 7 since 2006).
The hotel is located on the busy JFK Blvd leaving IAH airport but don't let that put you off as you do not hear anything of the traffic. It's location right near to the Beltway 8 makes is so convenient for heading down to Houston or any routes north.
I have always found the hotel to be clean and tidy with the staff being very friendly and attentive to my needs and requests.
The staff are not over attentive to the point where you feel hassled but they seem to be there when you need them or need some assistance.
The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and all the conveniences are there too in the room and around the hotel.
I would use this hotel every trip but for the price, there are many hotels locally or within a 15 minute drive that offer the same standards but are 30% + cheaper, if this was addressed then this hotel would be ideal.
The only other slight niggle is that there is not much for you to walk to here, a small stip mall with a bar and a couple of fast food restaurants and that is about it but thats not the fault of the hotel.
They have their own restaurant and bar and food is of a high standard but if one is staying for 2 wells it gets a bit "samey" after the first week, maybe consideration could be given to extending the menu of changing it alternate weeks.
Car rental at the airport is located nearby so thats convenient too and they run a shuttle to and from the airport.
In summary, great hotel with just very minor downsides if you are not driving.
